In addition to the regional associations that make up our organizational members, the International Association of Crime Analysts forms partnerships with other associations, organizations, and agencies with compatible goals. Our current partners include:
Center for Problem-Oriented Policing
The POP Center is one of the most useful resources on the Internet for agencies and analysts looking to improve their analysis and responses to long-term or chronic crime problems. In 2010, the IACA partnered with the POP Center to co-host our Annual Training Conference, and the event was wildly successful, drawing more than 800 registrants to Arlington, Texas. Based on the success of this conference, we are exploring future co-hosting opportunities as well as other projects of mutual benefit.
Data-Driven Approaches to Crime and Traffic Safety (DDACTS) Program
DDACTS is an operational model created by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the National Institute of Justice, and the Bureau of Justice Assistance. It encourages police agencies to create analysis-based responses that simultaneously impact both crime and traffic accident hot spots. The IACA is a national partner in the DDACTS program, providing analytical expertise and perspective. In exchange, NHTSA promotes IACA membership and resources among agencies attending DDACTS workshops.
Fundación Paz Ciudadana, Santiago de Chile
Paz Ciudadana is a nonprofit institution that promotes innovation in crime reduction for the policing and criminal justice institutions in Chile. As part of their overall mission, they have made it a primary goal to improve the state of crime analysis in Chile. FPC and the IACA co-hosted symposiums in Santiago in August 2008 and April 2011, and we have further plans to engage in joint publications, certification, and translation of existing crime analysis literature.
International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards & Training
IADLEST is an association of standards and training managers and leaders. Its primary focus is criminal justice standards and training. To the extent that the focus and the values promoted thereby can be furthered and shared, all training professionals are welcome as members. The mission of IADLEST is to research, develop, and share information, ideas and innovations which assist states in establishing effective and defensible standards for employment and training of law enforcement officers, and, in those states where dual responsibility exists, correctional personnel.
Colegio Mexicano de Análisis y Desarrollo Estratégico
The Mexican College of Analysis and Strategic Development is an academic institution of excellence, focused on the training of professionals in the analysis as an autonomous discipline, as well as in the specialized treatment of information on different subjects (justice, business, health, social development, security , economy, finance, among others) demanded by public and private organizations.
Its foundation responds to the need to foster spaces for meeting and reflection – as an agora – for the community of analysts in Mexico, which facilitates research, debate and knowledge production in the discipline of analysis and its impact on Strategic thinking and social change.
American Society of Evidence-Based Policing
The ASEBP is a non-profit organization designed to drive the national conversation towards ensuring that the least harmful, most effective, fairest and safest research-based strategies are employed to prevent crime, reduce harm and improve community and officer wellness. At the core of ASEBP is the belief that law enforcement is a noble profession, filled with talented professionals, who are capable and ready for positive change towards evidence-based practices. The ASEBP wants to create a society that receives input from the street cops that work on these problems daily. We see science as a solution to guiding the art of policing.
ASEBP offers our members: a yearly conference; a bi-monthly newsletter; a bi-weekly EBP digest; a bi-weekly research brief; a monthly blog; a robust general listserv; access to Justice Clearinghouse webinars and 12 EBP webinars a year.
